Ken Siegelman’s Brooklyn Poetry Outreach
On last Thursdays at the Park Slope Barnes & Noble, a featured poet reads at 6:30pm, followed by an open mic that runs until about 8:30pm. The crowd is a little like the one on 13th Avenue, except you also get a few young Park Slope people (including sometimes the very young—I mean kids!). Siegelman was Brooklyn’s poet laureate and the host of this series until he died in 2009.
